    What woud've happened?

    even with the injuries?
    As much as I am an Urlacher homer he ranks 4th on this list in hindsight.

    1. If we resigned isreal idonjie
    2. if we would've resigned Matt Toneia
    3. If we would've kept Marenelli as our D-Coordinator?
    4 If we would've re-signed Urlacher for one year.

    Same result as this year IMO. I must have missed where Idonije, Toenail and an old and slow Urlacher were impact players.
    The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good ideas!

    i might give ETighe a point on #3. a defensive coordinator who helps his players improve would be a big plus.

    as for the rest, i have to concur that there was no impact made by Idonjie, Toeaina, or Urlacher this season, so their absence wasn't particularly noticeable.
    Your Chicago Bears: still learning about this newfangled thing called the "forward pass."

    Marinelli did wonders with HIS injury-riddled defense in Dallas this year...

    (That said, I'm off the "Tucker deserves the benefit of the doubt bandwagon")

    How about if Robbie makes a 47 yard FG indoors in OT?

    Was that the game when we tried to run the clock out in the 4th quarter with a 7 point lead?
    Basic, yes, but it was something we rarely saw under former Bears coordinator Ron Turner. Turner's idea of in-game adjustments involved his boxer shorts. -Rick Morrissey.

    Urlacher would have made a huge difference, regardless of how much Bears fans try to argue otherwise.
    Yes we wasnt the same player as he once was, but he knew the position well, unlike Bostic who never seemed to be anywhere near the ball.
    He controlled the middle of the field, just his mere size created more difficult lanes up the seams.
    And he provided leadership, something this Defense really needed.

    I agree with all of this.

    I would imagine they probably would have been better on D and won an extra 1-2 games because of it.

    However, that would have just convinced them they were close enough to keep dragging things out another year.
    They may anyway, but there's also a chance they might finally have the sense to blow up the D and start over.
    The word "hero" is frequently abused badly. This is a real hero.
